The MANARIN B&B takes its name from an old custom of the high pasture dating back certainly to the 1920s. This custom ascribed every family a nickname by which it would be known. There were, therefore, a great many nicknames which still exist and which come to be sometimes used. In the case of our family, it is probable that our ancestors were woodsmen who would often use as their main working tool an axe, which in dialect is, in fact, called a "MANARIN".
The construction of the house dates to the first years of the nineteenth century, as can be seen from the Belluno's Napoleonic historical archives. It has then been used in the first years of the twentieth century as a place for the smoking meat, both from sheep and pigs, used by all the inhabitants of the area. Rebuilt in the 1970s and again refurbished in 2005, today it appears to its guests as a classical Alpine dwelling where the local wood and stone tell of its origin, in the green land of the small valley of the Cismon waterfall. The rebuilding work of the house was carried out with an eye also to energy conservation: specifically, solar panels have been installed and a heat efficient biomass boiler.
